Fighting for Para-Legals
November 22, 2011 permalink
Harry Kopyto is continuing his fight on behalf of para-legals, and on behalf of affordable representation for families caught up in the court system. Mr Kopyto is schooled in the law, but was expelled by the bar over allegations of misconduct. He is now using his opportunity to defend against those allegations. The latest report is from Attila Vinczer. Follow all the details on Harry Kopyto's blog
Attila Vinczer Attended the Harry Kopyto good character hearing at Osgoode Hall today where I asked the LSUC panel to allow me to video record the proceeding. Harry argued in favour of my doing so on my behalf. I stated to the panel that it was in the public interest to do so as not everyone could attend as they had to be at work. I noted that this process and outcome thereof affects all Canadians who ought to have access to our legal system. He already had leave from the LSUC panel to record his hearing. I saw the CCW pamphlet circulating that shows how to seek leave to record your own court proceeding. The panel asked me to put a motion forward seeking leave to video record the proceeding. I offered to submit an oral motion right there and then, but the panel refused to hear me and asked that I follow Rule 7 of the Rules of Procedure.
To watch Harry tear apart a police officer during cross examination was priceless. This cop of 16 years was hired by the LSUC in an attempt to find information that would support their witch hunt endeavour against Harry who has and continues to fight fervently for all Canadians's rights. The right to have access to our legal system that is currently controlled by lawyers accessible to those with money. The poor are subject to tyranny and a lack of access to the legal system. Often even those with money are stripped to the bone of their life savings while they are made to pay legal fees that are outrageously high.
